Dating james hipp
Her name was Lori Lochowitz, and they met in the summer of 1962 back home in Racine as she was dating a friend.
Jim liked to give her a hard time because she attended Marquette University, with no football team, but it was a different story come basketball season.
Back at school that fall, Lori had some friends who were talking about attending a UW football game.
Lori chimed in that she knew someone who could get tickets, and so her connection with Jim was rekindled. Not long after Lori graduated from Marquette in 1966, the sweethearts were married on September 3, 1966, at St. The newlyweds initially lived in Madison for one year while Jim completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy, graduating on June 5,1967.
This work motivated Jim to fully apply himself to his studies as he did not want to have a career at the foundry.
Not to be forgotten during this time was Jim’s introduction to the young woman with whom he would write a love story that would span nearly 50 years.
He worked hard during the summers at a steel foundry in Racine to put himself through school.
He encouraged them to strive to be their very best, too.
Jim was always there for his children in every way possible.
It was no secret that Jim was married to his soul mate as they were partners, companions, and best friends.
His love as a husband spilled over into the love he had for his children, and he felt like the luckiest man in the world to become Pa Pa to the most amazing grandchildren.
